“Nice Area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

I stayed in a hotel near La Defense. It is a nice place and "Le Quatre Temps" mall is a big mall with all shopping options available. Very nice places to eat. There is a lovely carousel at La Defense. I bought Disney tickets online and received them in less than a minute from the FNAC store at CNet in front of the mall!
RER A and metro line 1 can take you to any destination in Paris from La Defense.
It is a must visit. The grand arch is nice there :)

“A welcome modern addition to traditional Paris”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We stayed at the Adagio La Defense Esplanade Aparthotel and found this place to be a truly nice (and welcome) addition to Paris. The Quatre-Temps mall is a most beautiful mall with exciting shopping for all ages. There is a food court with all kinds of foods and the people are welcoming to non-French speaking tourists.

“I don't know why tourist groups pay a visit to that corner of Paris”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

I was not impressed by the great arc, and I believe it should not be visited. It's a waste of time.
Shopping centres are waiting for all the tourists but they are worth nothing compared to Galleries Lafayette.

“Well worth the time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

I am a bit of a traditionalist. I cannot stand modern music or dance but I do like modern architecture. La Defense is a mix of modern skyscraper, traditional building and the out-there modern. The most striking is the Grande Arch. The Grande Arch and the other buildings offer a range of photo opportunities. Take the Metro to La Defense Grande Arch and walk down to the next Metro station. Great views down to Arc de Triomphe.
